On the first of April this year, something magical happened. But alas!
It was NOT an April Fools Prank! Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids!
Instead, myself (hi, I'm Mark) and the rest of the EMAWM Team (Josh
& Chris) hopped onto a Skype call and recorded this mini-concert
you're hearing today! For those of you who don't know, "EMAWM Live" is
basically what happens when the slick musicians that make up the EMAWM
collective get together online to take turns performing awesome music
for each other and the world (this session would be branded under "Nerd
Central", but we didn't open the "stage" up to non-EMAWM bups this time
As per tradition when I write liner notes for these things, I'd like to
tell you about what makes this session different from previous such
sessions. If you came here hoping for a 100% unique lineup of
performers, this session breaks that tradition (not that it matters,
because we're all super awesome performers). However, some pretty unique
stuff does happen in the nearly 48 minutes packed of fun that is this
recording. Two of the songs played today are first being debuted here
(but you'll have to guess which two). Additionally, you'll get to hear
Josh cover "Call Me Maybe" in Japanese, as well as do a synthpop cover
of YMO's "Firecracker". All things considered, the 17 tracks that make
up this performance are all definitely worth a listen.
Don't face that book or snap that chat! Just listen to EMAWM Live on any
or all available mediums!
1. Mark - Space Oddity (David Bowie)
2. Josh - Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo (The Bloodhound Gang)
